The OSJ Store

The OSJ Store - Original Sin Jewelry

Howdy Jewelry Fan! We’ve come steamrolling into 2020, and there’s so much great stuff going on, it’s hard to believe it. I began 2019 thinking things were reaching a new level. And they did. And that has only continued and expanded into this New Year. If you're tracking (following) Original Sin Jewelry’s journey on social media—Facebook (@OriginalSinJewelry) & Instagram (@margaret_osj), you may have noticed that I’m settling into a Brick and Mortar Store at La Encantada in Tucson, AZ.

Honestly (and you know I must, in all things be honest), I feel more like an accidental store owner, having grown accustomed to the life of a traveling, exhibiting Contemporary Art Jeweler. I enjoy meeting you in your hometown, Jewelry Fan, where you live, where you find your Joys and Challenges, where you live your best, authentic life, all across this big, beautiful country. However, there’s a longing in me to make my roots deeper, to expand my heart and soul and include my own hometown in my work, my art, my journey. So, having read “The Surrender Experiment” by Michael A. Singer, I’ve embraced this opportunity as precisely the perfect moment to stretch in an unexpected direction.

If you’re ever in the Old Pueblo, please stop by and say “Howdy!”.  Currently, we’re on the Upper Level of the La Encantada Plaza between Humble Pie and Barre 3.  My amazing store staff works hard to create the best shop windows (really selfie worthy!) in the Plaza and the best shopping environment for Contemporary Art Jewelry in the city.  We are Tucson Local. We are Tucson Proud.  And we are bringing OSJ’s brand of Authentically Positive Conscientiously Satisfying Jewelry to my Sonoran Desert hometown.

Don’t worry, Jewelry Fan, I’ll still be doing shows and meeting up with you in your hometown. Just maybe not as often (you can find my schedule HERE). If you’ve been holding onto an idea for a Custom OSJ piece of Contemporary Heirloom Art Jewelry, now’s the time to either come by the store, or get in touch online HERE in order to get your project started. We might be a bit too late for Valentine’s Day production wise, but Easter and Mother’s Day are right around the corner and sooner is always better than later. You can also call, text 1-985-377-2035 to set an appointment at the store.


(Whispering—you can also always find my work online at, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Really. Even at 2am in your pajamas or birthday suit. I won’t see, I won’t ask, and I won’t tell.)

Artist Margaret Aden with Finn (who is blind during the day)
Walking Blind

January 29, 2024

But what I’ve noticed lately is just how BRAVE Finn is every day. He boldly walks around in full sunlight; having memorized where the posts to the porch are, how to get up and down across the terraced, brick landscaping in the yard. He knows where my utility trailer is parked and avoids it while he takes care of his personal business. Finn even knows where the pool is and how to avoid falling in while walking around the whole thing. (I mean, that last part was learned the hard way, he falls in once or twice a year and we fish him out and dry him off. Big dogs have big wet dog smells too.)

What’s the What with Cleaning your OSJ Jewelry
What’s the What with Cleaning your OSJ Jewelry

Quick list of things that cause sterling silver to tarnish: oxygen, hydrogen sulfide (small component of our actual air), sulfur (rotten egg smell in Florida water or hot springs all over), acids (some face creams, trace amounts in tissues and paper), acids (also include your personal pH based on the water you drink and the food you eat!), chlorine (pools, shower water, cleaning the toilet) and general moisture (live in the South or East Coast anyone??)

The Thing About Turquoise…
The Thing About Turquoise…

January 26, 2023

The colors and shades and differing colored matrices of turquoise are unique to each region and mine where turquoise is found. Sometimes, like in Bisbee, AZ, finding turquoise is a byproduct of copper mining. Each area reflects the minerals and elements present when the seams of turquoise are formed and the matrix the host rock or sedimentary rock which was not dissolved. Truly, each piece is one of a kind.
